Spark-it Market: Clear Acrylic Coffee Table

Peekaboo Coffee Table from CB2

Now you see it . . . now you don’t.

The almost invisible Peekaboo Clear Coffee Table from CB2 is a simple, acrylic table that is a copy of more expensive designer versions. It’s a miracle table that seems to take up no visual space and that manages to blend with modern and vintage furniture.

Here’s where the “Spark-it Market” comes in. . . one our Spark clients ordered this table from CB2 but won’t be needing it after all. This is a brand new table that she’d rather not send back to the company, which means a lucky Austin resident can buy it directly from her with no shipping charges. If you are interested in this table, contact us at hello@sparkinteriors.com and we will connect the decorating dots from one client to another.

My Sweet and Sunny Lounge Comes Together

Even though my sitting room isn’t entirely complete, I wanted to share this sweet space which has become a favorite for our family.

Seen Around: Best Fabrics (and Best Trims)

Seen Around: Best Fabrics (and Best Trims)

Yesterday, I stopped by Best Fabrics on Burnet Rd. and Research, near Furniture Row. It’s not easy to spot the shop, but it’s worth discovering since Austin is short on good fabric stores. The inventory is neatly organized and includes quality fabrics for drapery or upholstery needs. According to our seamstress Leslye Womack, this is [...]

It doesn’t rely on pattern or gorgeous repeat.  It tells a little story in a big way.  It makes me feel like I’ve stepped into one of the luscious images by one of my favorite illustrators.  I’m a character in my own room where a lifesize tale [...]
